Pixelventures: Morning Walk

Morning Walk

One balmy day with my son I walked
Along back roads past vineyards and farms
Taking photos of trees, gates and barns
Of light and of poetry we talked.
We came to Sarca’s ancient floodgate.
Abandoned now to desolation’s rust
He turned a wheel with a mighty thrust
And wondered of its opening date.

What was it’s purpose long time ago…
Did it save past men from Sarca’s rage
Or feed canals to make vineyards grow?
Unread is the floodgate’s story page.

These shots are part of our morning walk
These words a nod at our lazy talk.
